Google revealed their first look into "Project Glass," augmented reality eyeglasses that allow one to have Google services available at all times, reports the Washington Post.
According to a video Google posted on Google+ Wednesday, the glasses will be able to display messages, chats, appointments, weather and maps right in your field of vision, reports the Washington Post.
The glasses, which remain in the prototype stage, place a small transparent display screen above the wearer's eye that can show maps and other data. With voice commands, the wearer can get directions or chat a friend, reports the New York Times.
Although it is unclear whether people will want to wear glasses with a screen in their field of vision, those who have seen and used the working prototypes have said that the glasses do not interfere with daily life, the New York Times reports.
"They let technology get out of your way. If I want to take a picture, I don't have to reach into my pocket and take out my phone; I just press a button at the top of the glasses, and that's it," one person said, the New York Times reported.
